I bought the large basket to store blankets in our basement TV room and it is perfect. I have an oversized weighted blanket that needed a bit sturdy basket and this is both beautiful and functional!
Bought these to hold pool towels and blankets....they worked out perfect. Looked great as well.
The basket was great, it just wasn't the color I had expected from the pictures. I am waiting for the darker color to get back in stock.
Adrienne, Thank you for your note, although we’re so sorry to hear that the basket wasn’t what you expected when it arrived. That can happen from time to time since each basket is handwoven in an all-natural material, but we want you to love everything about any Citizenry item you order. We’re happy to hear our Client Experience Team is taking care of you and getting you the darker basket. We’ll make sure they continue to keep the conversation going, and please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can do anything else. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
Love the size and look but did not anticipate the weight of the basket.
Absolutely love this line of baskets! I have the large round one and smaller rectangular shape. The large round holds my children’s soft toys in our living room and keeps the space looking put together. These baskets are all so unique in their color variations. They truly look like artisanal handmade pieces. They seem very durable. It does shed slightly when rubbing up against it. When my children pull out their toys from the large basket, I notice little pieces of the basket material on our dark hardwood floor where it sits. Doesn’t bother me at all. I waited three months for the rectangular one to come back in stock to purchase and it was well worth the wait! As an aside, this is not ideal for holding delicate knit throws or textiles that are prone to pulling. I use the rectangular basket to hold house slippers, purses, and hats at one of our entrances. When I threw my scarf in there and pulled it out later for use, it snagged from catching on the basket.
Rustic, austetic appeal and looks amazing in my foyer under my Asian style black bench.
